Out There

Chinese boy apparently has animal's night vision. Ultra high strangeness story.

This is probably one of the strangest stories we have ever posted. The reason is that there is every indication, from night vision to blurred vision in daylight, that this child has tapetum lucidum in his eyes, the same material that enables animals to see in the dark and also causes their eyes to glow at night when a light shines on them. The human need for ultra-clear vision during daylight has caused our eyes to evolve away from those of animals. While some primates have tapetum lucidum, this child's eyes would appear to be absolutely unique in the human world.

This phenomenon is probably rare indeed. But would we discover it also in the West where there are many people with blue eyes?
Although rare there must be more people with tapetum lucidum in their eyes.
